Tokyoflash Introduces the Kisai Escape C, a Hands-Free, Media-Controlling, Bluetooth Neck-Pendant

Maximum PC Staff

Bling comes in all shapes and sizes. So to, unfortunately, do Bluetooth devices. Image the bizarre possibilities if you combine the two. One such possibility is Tokyoflash’s new Bluetooth headset/remote control . It’s all neatly packaged as a neck pendant. How very, very stylish.

It’s not really clear what is the Kisai Escape C. It’s touted as a “personal wireless receiver with headset & headphone profiles.” It allows hands free phone calls, and can be used for VoIP. It will also pair with a Bluetooth capable Mac, PC or MP3 player, where it can be used as a remote control. And, we are told, it “displays the time in a new way.”

There are a stream of specifications that can help make some sense of the Kisai Escape C. It has A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP interfaces. It uses Bluetooth v2.1 +EDR Class 2. It operates on the 2.4GHz frequency. And has a range of about 30 feet. Talk time is up to 6 hours; standby up to 180 hours. It charges through a USB port. And has a 3.5 mm audio jack.

Still, for all that it does, how useful can it be if it’s dangling around your neck? It’s a pity that Tokyoflash didn’t build this functionality into one of the watches it's so famous for.

Slashgear is expecting the Kisai Escape C to be available sometime this quarter, and cost between $150 and $180.
